Urban raptors is not an oxymoron, as much as one might think of birds of prey belonging in habitat wild and open.
Why these hunters have adapted so well to us and our lifestyles is explained in a new book entitled, appropriately, "Urban Raptors."
This collection of essays has been edited by Clint W. Boal and Cheryl R. Dykstra. The book has been published by Island Press. Boal is a research biologist working with the U.S. Geological Survey and as a professor of wildlife at Texas Tech University. Dykstra serves as editor of The Journal of Raptor Research.
